We humans are big time wasters. What most of us probably don’t want, even though we definitely could use it, is a Mac app that tracks the time we spend on various tasks and projects. But, hey, it’s free. So, why not?
HR is not hr
All hr does is give you access to multiple timers from the Mac’s Menubar. Click the Plus sign to create a new timer, click to start the timer, click to stop the timer.
Tasks can be prioritized, archived, and organized from within the Menubar’s pop-down window..
Every task can be viewed and edited individually (good in case you leave a timer running). Add categories to organize tasks by client or whatever else works for you.
It couldn’t be much simpler to use ‘hr’, either. Click the Menubar icon. Click the Plus sign to create a new task. Click the right corner Menu icon to view more details.
Obviously, ‘hr’ is good for tracking time on tasks, which means it’s good for anyone who gets paid by the project or task. Except for one thing. There are no reports. ‘hr’ is just a time and task recorder.
However, everything you need to create a bill or invoice or data that should be dumped into a more comprehensive time and billing app is available with a click, as ‘hr’ exports a standard CSV file (good for spreadsheets, too). I don’t know of a task timer app that’s easier to use, and ‘hr’ is free (with a lean toward donationware).
